Indoor Gardening

The sun came out, well for a couple of days anyway. The plants that I’ve struggled to keep alive were so happy. H picked up this cute little puppy planter where her friend works. The seeds included with the kit are clover. The peat pot is kept moist by the tongue that wicks water from the bowl. I’m amazed how quickly the seeds began to grow. 


This was my mother’s Oxalis. It surprised me this week by flowering. I moved it from the living room to the dining room a couple of months ago. It was down to one leaf and then The Husband bumped it off the shelf. I thought for sure it was a goner. Evidently it’s very happy in the dining room. 


Remember the spider plant I bought a couple of months ago that I expected to kill. It did look pretty bad for a while but it seems to have recovered. Maybe my thumb isn’t as black as I thought.

    Most of my plants look pretty ragged by this time of year too. They’re coming back well though. Love the doggie planter – too cute!

    The puppy planter is too cute! Your plants are looking good. I’ve managed to keep a small poinsettia alive since December. The rest of the house looks like a greenhouse – the famer has seedlings all over the place. Waiting for warmer weather to move it all outside!

  7. My Oxalis has been down to nothing but still manages to come back to life especially since I moved it to a north facing window and remembered to water it regularly. Hard to ignore since it sits right beside my knitting chair.

    Man, that puppy planter! So cute! I recently bought a really healthy happy spider plant. First one of our cats was snacking on it, then she managed to knock it off the shelf it was on. Between that and not watering it consistently I thought it was going to die, but it sent out a shoot with a new baby, so maybe they just need an adjustment period.
